I find this day to be strange so far in many ways. It is my grandma’s birthday, so am celebrating although she passed many years ago.
But that is not why today is strange. No I set out my list last night for the day’s activities and although I didn’t follow it perfectly I am pretty damn pleased.
So far have eaten healthy, done yoga and abdomen exercises with stretching, taken care of my doggie’s hurt paw, braided my adult daughter’s hair and now blogging. I have been once again seeking balance in all I do and too much of anything even if it is good can be bad for you.
I have heard the term spiritual bypassing lately and I don’ t like it at all. I ditched a book that discussed this at length. I will always rely on God for my inspiration, my help my assistance. I will never consider this a weakness to rely on God too much so please don’t give up on God even if things are not going well for you. And if they are going well, well stop and thank God. It is that simple. done preaching ha ha
On to next topic. I am dedicated to getting in fit shape. I am talking my inactivity up til now must be conquered. I am an extremist so went out and bought some crazy colored workout pants to get me in the mood all day. I plank, try to do the splits and get up from sitting without assistance even on the ground. I am trying to get my steps in too. Taking a break now to do a Leslie Sansone walking video.
Be right back
Short but energizing workout.
My dad is stabilized again happy to write. God has plans for everyone but my dad defeats death regularly so it’s hard but happy today.
I am writing 7 E-books! Wow, came to me in a dream and i read that if we remember our dreams it is a message. So I dreamed I wrote 7 books so am going for it on Amazon. The first one can you guess is on exercise! The last one is on spiritual something or other and the ones in between will be revealed.
I am not there yet folks. I might be doing well in my recovery from schizophrenia/schizoaffective disorder but I’m happy with being discontent. Because in discontent there is room for improvement and I am ever after self improvement at any cost with rare exception.
I write as I struggle to develop my practices. Writing helps me find my words that lie deep within ready to emerge at the right time. It solidifies much of what i am after. Still haven’t found a mentor but not going to let that stop me.
I have been listening to Zen studies podcast with a wonderful priestess. Very enlightening. Today instead of watching my show during breakfast I listened to her and it was better to be inspired rather than mindlessly entertained. We shall see if it becomes a habit.
wishing you all the very best
peace love light and joy
